* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: The sequel seems to have the message that trying to improve upon your weaknesses (i.e. Vaughn's lack of off speed pitches) is a waste of time when you can do one thing very well.

** The 1995 Seattle Mariners ended up having quite a few similarities with the Indians' season in the movie: a perennial losing team on the verge of moving that staged an incredible comeback to win their division in a one-game playoff (Ironically, they were eliminated in the ALCS... by ''Cleveland'').

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The original ending of the first movie painted Rachel Phelps in quite a different light. In a deleted scene, she confides to Lou Brown that she never had any intention of moving the team, and all her actions were [[BatmanGambit a ploy]] to motivate them to success. The scene was cut because test audiences liked the character better as a villain.

* {{Flanderization}}: Bites Dorn hard in the second film. In the first, he's certainly a PrimaDonna who sleeps around on his wife, but nonetheless is a talented veteran and legitimate superstar. However his fear of injury in advance of upcoming contract negotiations leads him to playing it safe (read: not making plays he ''should'' be making) so as not to damage his value, which eventually gets him called out by Taylor for spoiling things for the rookies, while also reminding him that he was once a great player. Come the second film, he's whiny and incompetent, and is presented as if he were a complete joke as a player.



*** Tanaka wasn't a bad trade because he was Asian. He was a bad trade because A) he didn't speak a word of English, and B) he was ''bat-shit crazy!'' Of course, so were about 2/3 of the guys on the team...
*** This is definitely a case of YMMV, as the crux of the joke was that MLB fans at the time perceived Japanese pro baseball as something of an inferior league. Ichiro came over with roughly the same grasp on English as Taka, after all. The whole set up and introduction of Tanaka is clearly meant to imply they got an inferior player (though he must have been better than the left fielder they had prior). All this being said, the rest of the movie goes to show that he's not horrible, and in fact, being bat-shit crazy could be useful (his challenging of Cerrano, his kamikaze play in the outfield was more useful than detrimental, etc)
